Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    We went to an investitiure in Berlin, at the US Hospital to see punters get their 3 year Army LS&GC.
  2. Bloody hell!! mind you i still wouldn't have got mine then :lol:
  3. Don't they have a medal for advanced breathing?
  4. just checked out the number of gongs the septics will be getting for 'Operation Iraqi Misjudgement'
    not counting actual Iraq medal, gallantry or non specific 'sun burn under enemy sky' medals.

    Armed Forces Service Medal (all)
    Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal(all)
    Bronze Star (like confetti)
    Purple Heart (thousands of these babies)
    Prisoner of War Medal (more than theyd have like to give)

    no double gonging there then :roll:

    I dont see the "Maybe that wasn't a such a good idea, Dick." Medal
  6. you missed the flying over the atlantic medal, and - if thier kite goes over N.I. Airspace - they get another gong for flying over another warzone medal too.

    Not forgetting:

    - the 'Reading without moving lips' medal
    - the 'Using cutlery properly' medal (rarely awarded)
    - the 'Having bowels open regularly' award
  8. Don't forget the famous "Walkin and chewing gun at same time" gong. I got 2 of those! :D
  9. and the 'bloody stupid accent' medal.
  10. Every time they speak then? :twisted:
  11. And a bar for flying back!!!
  12. Because the Yank butt has increased in size to the size of small Carribean Islands and their airline companies now offer a seat for each buttock on long-haul and domestic flights, they have introduced the "Does My Butt Look Small in These Pants?" medal. Of course, not one single Yank will ever get that, unless he gets cholera. :D
  13. It's actually three years now. Was changed around 1995 or 1996
  14. Guys in the Defence Fire Services (ok - you may think they don't do that much work - but they do - i should know!!) have to wait 20 hard years before they are eligible for their LSGC medal.

    I suppose the work involved is entirely different.
